Montana is in no shortage of blue skies. The challenge is to actually feel the movement of the clouds, the warmth of the day and the laziness of the cattle. For me adding the warm tones in the foreground, subtly brings out the intensely blue sky while at the same time the shadows and shapes move across the horizon.
Evening at the Tetons, oil, 30×40″ is part of the Western Masters Art Show & Sale.
This four-day fine art exhibition is held March 19-22, 2014 at the Best Western Heritage Inn in Great Falls, Montana, room 248. The show opens Wednesday evening with the Welcome Party at 6:00 P.M. www.westernmastersartshow.com/about.php
These are not just any mountains, but the Grand Tetons. Mountains so spectacularly fashioned by God that they are impossible to recreate. I was in awe of the light coming through the ominous clouds and reflecting in the water below — a breathtaking scene!
